Ted Olson, attorney for the American Foundation for Equal Rights who successfully argued for marriage equality in California and Virginia cases, versu hate group leader Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, in an appearance today on Fox News Sunday.
Says Olson: “We have a Constitution and a Bill Of Rights precisely because we want protections from majority rule. When the majority in a legislature or a popular vote take away rights of individuals that are protected by the Bill Of Rights, then we have an independent judiciary to rectify that situation. It’s happened again and again and again throughout this country’s history.”
